(WSCR) Count Lance Briggs among those who took exception to Packers’ tight end Jermichael Finley’s comments regarding Brian Urlacher.

Earlier this week, Finley suggested the Bears may be better without the aging middle linebacker.

“Urlacher is at the end of his career right now; he’s playing a little slow out there,” Finley said, according to FoxSportsWisconsin.com. “I don’t think they’re losing too much if he’s out. Putting another guy (Nick Roach) in might help them a little.”

Briggs was quick to respond to Finley on Thursday.

“He’s an idiot,” Briggs said. “Suit up and play ball.

“I have a lot of respect for their team and their players and their accomplishments. It doesn’t matter. I don’t like the Packers and we gotta win.”
